Richard Palmer was invited to contribute an article to the Old Mill Rural Insight. He wrote about the issues we are uncovering in our PV Healthchecks and how farms and estates can improve financial and technical performance of solar arrays and mitigate the financial risks being carried by some schemes.
Press release: Landowners interested in securing income from energy schemes should not be put off by an apparent lack of grid capacity. Grid availability is changing all the time, with success often depending on timing.
In our experience, most on-site solar PV schemes are underperforming in one way or another. Schemes can be missing out on revenues and savings, suffering high operating costs, and/or accruing risk of crippling one-off costs. Our PV Healthcheck reviews schemes and makes recommendations to ensure technical and financial performance is maximised.
